Painted Willie


Formed through the ashes of Sin 34, Coated Willie debuted on SST using the label’s brand feeling of adolescent humor, though linked more to straight-ahead rock and roll than punk or hardcore. Guitarist Vic Makauskas, bassist Phil Newman, and drummer Dave Markey shaped in LA in the first ’80s, released Brain Bowling in 1985, after that documented a live EP in close by Van Nuys twelve months later. Upsidedowntown implemented in 1987, and the band split up, though SST released the Relics compilation in 1988.
